Eurovision Song Contest winner Sandie Shaw has revealed she is on speaking terms with her former husband - 50 years after he lost her fortune.

Shaw, 73, won the song contest in 1967 with Puppet on a String and went on to earn thousands from her music. She lost it all after her second marriage, in 1968, to designer Jeff Banks, now 77.

He left her living in a caravan with their daughter Gracie when they divorced in 1978 after spending her money on a failing career as a designer, reported The Times.

But since Shaw rebuilt her life she is 'amazingly happy' and has even started speaking to Mr Banks again.
